Well, the way it's structured with the NHL still controlling the Coyotes, Bettman only needs 7 other owners to support him and he can pretty much do what he wants. They publicly present a uniform front, but you know some owners (Dolan) are pretty unhappy with how things have unfolded, and would oust Bettman if they could.
